As teachers, it is important that we continuously check students ' understanding of material in order to ensure that they have solid grasp of content. While sometimes checks for understanding might be done through formal assessments, it is necessary to also use informal assessments periodically throughout the week. Below are 6 quick activities that you can incorporate into your lessons in order to monitor students ' understanding. 1 Question 1 Answer - Each student writes down a question on a piece of paper. All of the students then stand up, and find another student in the room to ask their question. Students will have 2 - 3 minutes to ask one another their questions and write their answer. After they answer each other's questions, students will have another 1 - 2 minutes to write new question before completing the process again. 3 - 21 - At the end of lesson, students identify 3 things they learn, 2 questions they still have and 1 thing they would like to know more about. Journal Entry - teacher provides prompts for class based on the day's lesson or unit of study. Students will then write their response to prompt in a notebook for the teacher to correct. This is a great activity for students to complete at the end of each week or unit to summarize what they learn. 5 to 1 - teacher asks questions to class. Students will rank their understanding of content on a scale of 1 - 5. This is a great way for teachers to get a quick gauge of students ' understanding without taking up too much class time. Ticket out Door - The teacher asks students one question that can be answered in 2 - 3 sentences based on the day's lesson. Students will write their responses on a sticky note or index card, and then hand it to the teacher before they can exit the classroom. Stop Light - Each student has three pieces of paper red, yellow and green. When the teacher asks class question or checks for understanding, students hold up one of the colors based on their understanding. Red - not there yet; Yellow - Nearly there; Green - Good to go. This is a great activity to implement across board in all classes by giving each student laminated colored paper, or by having a class set for each room.
